Database Manager on January 06, 2009:

Updated through information received via e-mail from Larry Pruett: -- "The organ was dated from newspapers that were found inside the feeders when they were restored. They were dated 1847. I have no reason to believe that the organ was originally built for the Hollidaysburg church. Their building was not built until after the turn of the 20th century and I suspect that they acquired the organ second hand. (Although there is really no evidence of this)."

Purchased by Columbia Organ Works in 1997, and held by them until installed in Marietta Meeting House in 2008. The only other place the organ was installed was on temporary loan to St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Lancaster.
